We opened and decanted through a vinturi and then let it sit for two hours. Dark fruit on the nose, dark fruit, forest floor, fig and sage on the palate. A long smooth finish. Awesome considering its 21 years old.
Man was this good, drank over a period of 4 hours. Needed to open up after being in the bottle for 21 years. Very smooth and buttery we sipped it over a 4 hr period, only got better as time went on. This was the third bottle we tasted of the 1994 in the last 3 mos.
Two were in a real sweet spot, one was past it's prime with a bit of sourness on the finish. Most likely a hit or miss on this year.
What a surprise! Still powerful but very smooth. Eucalyptus nose with lots of fruit in the mouth and a long finish. You find all the complex variations of older cabs. As much as I do not enjoy this wine when just released (too much!) it's amazing what 20 years will do. Drinking extremely well. Enjoy now.
Wow, integrated and yet still very richly primary. Mint, eucalyptus, wet pavement, foggy fresh air. Juicy dark fruits sitting behind white pepper, herbs, hay. Medium- tannins and acid. Maybe a couple years left but why not enjoy now.
